Radiation Medicine Programs
Our department is home to two fully-accredited residencies. The radiation oncology residency attracts outstanding candidates who spend four years after internship learning the art and science of radiation oncology under the mentorship of the faculty. As a group, they typically perform in the top 25 percent of residents nationally on in-service examinations, and current board pass rates are very high (top quartile). The program is currently approved for six residents over the four years. Residents are very active in research, with most of them presenting at national meetings and publishing in peer-reviewed journals during their residency.
The residency in medical physics accepts two residents per year for a two-year program, plus two to three additional physics residents are accepted into community-affiliate programs in Arkansas and Indiana. All of these residents are taken from our departmentally-based masters and PhD programs in medical physics. This fully accredited two year program is one of the longest running medical physics training programs in the country. The medical physics faculty are very engaged in didactic and clinical training of the students and residents and take great pride in the strength of the programs.
